Welcome to my Fall Home Tour of the Highland House!!
I’ve been excited to share this fall home tour of the Highland house! I hope you’ll find inspiration here on how you can decorate your own home! I haven’t always had a nice home and I’m a big believer in creating beauty no matter what your home looks like. Whether it was the apartments I managed and lived in (with 3 kids) while my husband was in dental school or the Army housing we were assigned, I always tried to create a beautiful home with what limited money and resources I had at the time.
It just takes some creativity and some DIY to add some beauty to your home. One of the reasons I started sharing photos of my home was to create inspiration on how to make a house feel like a home. Creating warmth in my home has always been something I’ve enjoyed doing. I hope you’ll feel the warmth too! I tend to keep it simple on the fall decor. I am not a big Halloween decorator. Not because I don’t like it, but I’m too lazy and busy to do both fall and Halloween! I want to decorate for fall and call it good!
Front Porch and Entryway
For the front porch and entry, I hung two wreaths and added some mums and pumpkins. I found some rust colored obelisks, placed them in the flower pots and stacked pumpkins inside of them to make these cute pumpkin towers. I planted a few perennials to add some greenery around the the pumpkin towers.
In the living room I took out the grey chairs and swapped them with the ivory colored spindle chairs. I took out the blush pink pillows and throws and added in the blue and ivory pillows and throws. Because my fall colors this year were blue and orange, I took out everything that would clash. I added in some blue and ivory velvet pumpkins and switched out the flowers to match.
In the kitchen I used faux flowers to create the blue and orange flower arrangements. I kept my blue everyday dishes out on the open shelves and pulled out my orange plates and pumpkin dishes for the opposite side. I used my light blue cake stands and serving dishes on the upper shelves and tied it all together with some orange and tan velvet pumpkins that I put in a raised wooden serving bowl. Using some wood tones brings a little bit of warmth to the white and gray tones in the kitchen.
The island is always fun to decorate. I put one of the flower arrangements in the center on a wooden cutting board and tied orange berry wreaths around each of the bar stools.
For the family room, I added an orange plaid blanket and some new blue blankets. Having a basket of cozy blankets warms up any space. I put a few more velvet pumpkins on the end table (sorry, you can’t see them from this angle).
For the dining room, I put some faux branches and flowers into an orange metal can and set it in the corner. Then I made the cutest pumpkin tablescape. For the tablescape I used my tan dishes with little pumpkins on them and to add some color and contrast I used orange salad plates. I used brown, tan, and orange velvet pumpkins and a large wooden pumpkin as a centerpiece. You can read more here about the pumpkin tablescape.
For my bedroom, I changed the top blanket to a satin champagne coverlet and salt blue comforter and changed out the throw blanket.
I didn’t decorate my closet for fall but I did spruce it up a bit with some new books and a flower arrangement.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of my Highland home decked out for Fall. Pretty soon it will be time to Deck the Halls with boughs of Holly!
